I appreciate the work done by Serge and his team for providing us the Mortgage and helping us in arranging the utilities contract for our new House. It was a great effort put by independent expat finance. Everyone with whom I worked has helped me and guided me in good directions. I would like to thank you for your support. Keep up the good work!!!

Serge came to me as a recommendation from a trusted work colleague, and I’m thankful he did.  Being an expat with little understanding of how buying property worked here, Serge put my mind at ease and supported me each step of the way, even helping me to organise my insurances and utilities for my move in date. I trust Serge implicitly as he has a great knowledge of what’s on offer and he guided me successfully each step of the way. I felt that my money was well spent leaving it in his capable hands. I had loads of questions and he was always patient and happy to help. I work with a lot of expats, even helping them to move here in my profession as HR. I do recommend Serge and will continue to do so.

Independent Expat Finance turned out to be extremely helpful for setting up a mortgage and the various insurances and services for our new home in the Netherlands. This wasn’t our first international move, but it is always a stressful experience. In this situation, the reliable and friendly help of Serge Pouw and his associates was invaluable to navigating the jungle of financial services.

Even though i have lived in the Netherlands for 9 years i finally decided to switch to an English friendly company.  I sooo wish i had done this years earlier as not only did i get huge savings and better products but it is so nice they this company understands the international term for service.  I have only dealt with Theo at the moment and they go the extra mile to make sure everything is clear and the products you want.  I was so impressed i am talking to them also about changing my mortgage.  I highly recommend this company for expats who want the best product and service you will find.

Serge (Expat Finance) helped me get arrange a Mortgage to buy a property in Amsterdam while I was living in London; despite not being a Dutch national or being based in the Netherlands the process was very smooth and Serge was extremely proactive at every step. I’m very happy to recommend Serge (& Expat Finance) as a great solution for expats looking to buy a property in the Netherlands.

I’ve been introduced to Theo via my housing agent and from the first moment he has assisted me and my wife with figuring out the ins and outs of health and liability insurance.

He spared no time to explain in detail to us all the available options, what could be done in order to adjust the monthly fee to our standards as well as what extras we could add in the future.

Overall Theo and Independent Expat Finance have been our trustworthy allies in this difficult transition from Greece to the Netherlands and we can’t thank them enough for their invaluable assistance.
